Research overview

I am interested in the role that markets play in contemporary organising: how markets form, how they configure organisations, and how individuals shape – and are shaped – by market practice. I'm especially interested in the moral issues that surround markets, and the discourses, valuations and justifications invoked in market settings. Working in a School of Management, I'm deeply aware of how these topics relate to managers, and in my writing and teaching I'm beginning to develop sociological perspectives on what it means to be a 'responsible manager' or even a 'responsible enterprise'.

My work is located in the growing interdisciplinary field of 'market studies' and is informed by science and technology studies, as well as research into accounting and organisations. My empirical research has focused on non-professional investors, organ transplants and online dating, among other things.
